Reader Doug C. from Beaverton just sent a few photos of an invention he calls the “Drycycle.” Words can’t really do it justice, so thankfully he also sent along some photos. Check it out:
Doug says the Drycycle is made “entirely of plumbing parts from Home Depot and a garage sale tent.” The windshield? A shower curtain from Target.
a reason to smile.
But, does it actually work?
“I’ve been using it for two years now and it works great… I can ride to work in my normal work clothes in a steady rain and stay totally dry.”
Turns out that getting wet wasn’t what inspired Doug’s ingenuity. It was sweat. “I never liked wearing rain clothes over my work clothes and arrive to work all sweaty so this is my solution to that problem.”
Nice work Doug!
